The new single ‘Ghosts’ from Danish electronic pop-duo ARES hits you right in the heart (out November 8th)
The Danish duo ARES, which consist of singer Louise Væver Andersen and musician Line Mortensen, is now ready to release their new single ‘Ghosts’. The track is the first release since the duos well-received debut EP Lost from November last year.
ARES introduces a minimalistic and sharp soundscape on ‘Ghosts’. With only a single background synth, the vocals are allowed to set the vibe of the song right from the first note. With the words “I’m gonna call you out on all that you did wrong // you wouldn’t cut me loose // no you were just too weak,” the listener is drawn into a story about broken hearts, frustrations and finding the strength to move on.
With the release of ‘Ghosts’, ARES adds a new dimension to their sound and makes room for songwriting outside the typical ‘pop song formula’.
On ‘Ghosts’ ARES says:
“With our previous releases we introduced a more dark and melancholic side of the project, but with ‘Ghosts’ we wanted to show that our sound and songwriting is constantly evolving. ‘Ghosts’ shows a different and more minimalistic soundscape than what we presented on our debut EP. We wanted to challenge the classic and well known ‘pop formula’ and show that a good pop song doesn’t necessarily need to end with a double chorus.”
‘Ghosts’ is the first release since the duos debut EP Lost which was very well received by both Danish and international music blogs. With Lost and it’s three previously released singles ARES was mentioned amongst others by the big Danish music blogs Bands of Tomorrow and Gaffa. Also the British blog Purple Melon praised the EP after its release.
‘Ghosts’ is the first release in a string of singles leading up to the summer of 2020.
